If you are the Queen of Media, donât get on the bad side of Janet Hubert. Just ask, well, self-described media queen Wendy Williams who reamed by the actress who played Aunt Viv on the groundbreaking sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Tatyana Ali did an interview earlier this week on The Wendy Williams Show. Along with dancing around questions about whether or not she slept with her celeb crush Drake, the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star was asked about the departure of Hubert from the show back in the 1990s. Specifically, Wendy asked why was the actress replaced. (Numerous reports say Hubert was fired because she didnât get along with Will Smith.)
Needless to say, Aunt Viv was one of the hordes who Wendyâs talk with Tatyana, and gave her a piece of her mind via Facebook. âIf you want to know something about me, or anything about my life,â Hubert wrote, âwhy not go to the horses mouth instead of being a horseâs a** and going to someone who was a little girl at the time, Wiggy Williams? How you doin!! Just saying it like I mean it sistergirl.â
She also appeared on Blog Talk Radio to read her open letter live and on the air, taking her insults of Wendy a bit further. âWendy Williams, or whatever you are supposed to be, Iâm not quite sure,â she said. âIâm writing you yet again, to appeal to your sense of womanhood or manhood as some suggest. Please close your mouth about things that you know nothing of.â
Will Wendy learn a lesson from tussling with Aunt Viv? No. At least no lessons sheâs already learned, especially the one about insulting retorts via the web make for great publicity. But if she wants a bigger bang for her show, Wendy should invite Hubert on her talk show.
